The series, which debuts this summer on AMC and AMC+, stars Schitt’s Creek Supporting Comedy Actress Emmy winner Annie Murphy as a sitcom wife, who in between being the center of her husband’s jokes, loses it, and looks to break from the humdrum of her life; the series alternating her reality between single and multi-camera.
Eric Petersen plays her husband Kevin McRoberts and Mary Hollis Inboden is her bestfriend Patty O’Connor, while Alex Bonifer (Superstore) plays Patty’s brother.
“We never have to hit anyone over the head with a message. We’re asking you to reconsider the woman which you thought you knew. You knew she was happy and she was fine being the butt of the joke all the time, but she’s really pissed and ready for something else. I want the show to speak for itself in that regard,” said Armstrong.
“I can only hope women can identify with this and we can move beyond things that are relatable,” said the creator and EP on how the series hits a nerve.
